I Looove Summer!

The Summer heat continues so I've been enjoying plenty of days at the beach, eating gelato, and strolling around wearing my big sunglasses. Even school feels less like work and more like Summer camp...with lots of grammar.

This morning I went raspberry picking and contributed to the baking of delicious banana brownies. I can smell them right now, yuuuummy! They're for a potluck, so this time I'll be admiring their fragrance rather than their taste.

I will start posting more regularly in a few weeks, but right now is uber busy enjoy-Summer-while-it-lasts and play with your friends until the sun sets season, so I'm trying to avoid my computer. I love the ridiculously long, warm days of Summer - it's paradise!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Summer Hotness

I'm back! My internet connection has been very wonky and frustratingly inconsistent and slow lately, but only on my main computer, my laptop works fine. Technology continues to perplex me :) Yesterday I was walking around in Vancouver and I saw a store selling beautiful old typewriters - now that's more like it :) I stopped and admired them for a full minute :)

In other news, Vancouver is experiencing a heatwave - I guess the weather has to balance itself out :) I'm enjoying it - being able to wear sandals, flowy skirts, and tank tops after months spent bundled up in jackets and scarves is sooo liberating and wonderful! I can finally feel the sunshine on my skin :)

As for food, I recently tried some delicious Korean tea. There are many interesting flavours but so far my favourite is a nut blend. It comes as a powder packaged in individual little pouches. Just add hot water and you get a rich, creamy, nutty, extremely tasty cup of tea, mmmm. This particular tea was given to me so now I'll definitely have to go and try to find a place in Vancouver that sells it.

Have a wonderful weekend! Happy middle of July (aghhh!)!!

Happy Canada Day!

Ahhh, I love holidays! Especially happy and festive ones like Canada Day :) It's grey, it's gloomy, and it's raining, but the celebrations will continue nonetheless and we can enjoy some lovely time off to relax, recharge, and do something Canadian. Maybe I will eat some maple syrup :)

This kind of weather always makes me want to listen to Jeff Buckley. I'm like the dog who hears Pavlov's Bell :) Soon I'll have to stop though - because I'm going to get my hair cut this morning!! Eek, this time I will ask to keep it as long as possible, I don't want it too scary, military short!

Have a wonderful holiday day :)
